God approved

Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth (1 Timothy 2:15)

You get up and get dressed, before you walk out the door you stop and look at yourself in the mirror. You prepped and made yourself look “good” before you walk outside. This is a normal thing we can say. We always prepare and try to look our best, before a date, interview, or a special event. We do so not only to show others our best version but as well, to feel good about ourselves, presenting ourselves in a manner where we are not ashamed of who we are. As a Christian, I’ve learned what Paul described to Timothy about being approved and presenting yourselves to God.

As of late, I’ve begun to truly be of biblical sound doctrine. Christinaity to me is not religion and yet I still understand that to truly be known by God is to love God, to love God is to obey his word. In such a way I’ve learned that to be as one approved is to truly reflect the image of Christ and allow the Spirit to shape and transform us. No matter how much knowledge I’ve tried to gain, God provides the necessary wisdom to properly handle truth.

We are bombarded day in and day out, of things we “need” to know or “ways” we need to be. Yet I understand that God has guided me to allow me to use writing as a platform to teach, encourage, and help others. Yet even with all that is being done, I know as well that in doing things or learning, it isn’t about how I am seen but to truly present myself to God. To be able to rightly handle truth, his word and in so doing I invest my time, focus, on God and his word. I shall always do his will and I as well encourage all to do the same. People will judge you or even look at you because of what is said or how one seems. But we should always live for God as one approved.

Understanding Christianity

Understand this, I don’t speak about God because I want to be seen as “holy”. I speak it because it is truth. I spent 8 years in the occult and magick only to be revealed the truth and repent. I spend the rest of my life, dedicated to reveal the truth, share the Gospel, my calling, to preach.
The early Christians didn’t decide to start their own religion, nor did Jesus. We don’t follow a “man”, Jesus is not Michael, not a prophet or a mere teacher. That belief came from occultic roots, the freemasonry that had their people form religions or cults to change the minds of people, they formed the Mormoms, Seventh Day Adventists, Jehovah’s Witness and etc, these in turn are not Christian. Christianity was only perceived or made to be as one as the Catholic church emerged. Reading scripture by the pope was made unlawful.
Early Christians were killed because of their beliefs. If we look at ancient texts, history, even scripture we see see how many tried to deceive people with another philosophy or dissuade even within the church. Yet God’s truth has held firm, the books in the dead sea scrolls were Gnostic not scripture. Jesus’ body was not taken, guards were placed day and night, it would take soldiers to remove them and in turn the rock that covered the tomb, and it would have been reported. Hundreds witnessed Christ, resurrected and even accounts apart from scripture state how early Christians were said to see him, live differently by repenting, helping others and worshipping Jesus, because they saw just as scripture shows, he is the Christ. They saw him as God, Thomas declared, my Lord and my God. The spirit was revealed as God, when Ananias lied to not man but to God in the books of Acts.
I can inform and tell people about all of this but that will not change people. Only God can truly change peoples hearts. I simply preach the Gospel and using my testimony, I witness and pray I could lead others to Christ. I am a man being transformed to the image of Christ. That young boy who was an athiest to the lost kid who was demonically possessed or influenced by substances to this renewed man. His kingdom is coming soon and we must repent and believe in Jesus because only through him can we have life. No one can come to the Father but through him and if at any time anyone is unsure or has questions upon that which I speak I can help you understand. We are all in this together brothers and sisters and I love you all dearly.

Speaking with Reason

Listen, brothers, sisters, we don’t speak or write foolish things upon our claims as Christians in saying we follow Jesus, the truth. Most will derive there understanding as follows: Jesus was either a fool, liar, a good teacher, or who he said he was, the son of God. It is historically inaccurate to say he never existed, even apart of scripture it can be revealed. It is wrong to state he was a fool for he spoke with knowledge and truth of what was known in that age, even coming to Pilate and revealing he was without guilt. One can say he was a good teacher but must also understand the miracles he allowed to come to pass, healing the sick, raising the dead. No man has or will ever do what Jesus has done. Now to say or come to the conclusion that he is who he said he was, the son of God, something is revealed to you when you understand this.

Why were the early Christians willing to die for following Jesus? It is even spoken about outside of scripture how the “Christians” lived differently, helping the poor, living a way apart from sin, repenting, helping one another, and worshiping Jesus for they believed him to be raised from the dead. Raised from the dead. That in itself was a bold claim and yet we also see Paul declaring that if no one believed his testimony to ask those hundreds of people who did see the Christ resurrected. He is the son of God, “before Abraham was, ‘I Am’, the first and the last”. The one who said, I and the Father are one, the Jews knew at the time what he was declaring. “My Lord and my God”, he did not refute or disallow worship to him. The Father spoke saying, “even the angels worship him”, all was given to him, heaven and Earth. People question the trinity or Jesus, but our finite minds will never truly comprehend.

There is one God: The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are distinct Persons. The Bible speaks of the Father as God (Philippians 1:2), Jesus as God (Titus 2:13), and the Holy Spirit as God (Acts 5:3–4). But when it is revealed and we are allowed to grasp the supremacy of Christ, the reality of God, we are held in awe. Stand firm in your beliefs. Christianity is not religion, it is not a way of works though we understand faith without works is dead. We are not saved by our own accord for God has predestined us as the elect, we understand we are saved by grace through faith. Keep running the race. Don’t be swayed by false doctrines or high sounding philosophies. Scripture has stood the test of time and provided historical authenticity. Science doesn’t dispute the bible, nor does history. Research and study. Seek the Lord and he shall reveal all through his wisdom. Let our faith stand amidst the trials and let us live proclaiming his kingdom come, will be done. Leading many towards the truth, in Jesus’ name, Amen.

Another Day To Write

To all those that follow me, support me, I consider friends. Hear me out or take a moment to read. You may see me posting on here, depending which site you read this from, but understand who I am, why I am on here. I am but a man, 25 years old and though it is young I’ve experienced much in my life. I am not proud of my past and though I may appear like I have life together, better, I don’t. I don’t know the future. I can talk about and give advice about relationships, love, but I’ve broken relationships, played the villian, broke hearts, was self centered, loved and lost, regretted. I have a problem trusting people and if I open up it is because now, my life is a living testimony.

I’m not religious, in fact, I despise religion. I’m Christian. It is not because I was raised or “brainwashed” like cults. I was an athiest, then my curiousity in love with science found me to study mysticism, the occult, magick, like my grandfather. I would hear the stories from my Father and it incited my curiousity. From that I was allowed to see the truth and light of God. All my questions were answered by God. Even amidst the religions I looked into, the “wisdom” and knowledge I gained, God was the answer. I’ve always tried to seek it in things, peace, truth, love, and never was content. I’ve lost friends, I’ve lost loved ones. What I’m trying to say or write is this: life is so short. We spend hours studying to work jobs we might not like, we spend our time doing irrelevant things, we forget the simplicities or how intricately complex this life is.

We allow this world were suppose to take care of rot with our choices and the degradation of humanity continues as we focus on our egos. I can speak about it for hours but it is true. No posts or likes will stop what is happening in the world or simple words spoken or written, only action. Even so on my knees and a crying plea for us to reevaluate life. We need to be changed. I don’t speak to boast on my merits or puff up in my knowledge over things but out of love. I speak to help others understand the truth. If I speak about God it is because I wish to share how be has changed me and revealed who he is. If I speak against or expose something it is to reveal the lies we have been lead to believe. Amongst the hours spent researching, day and night. If I write or talk about love it is because I’ve experienced true love and know its beauty in entirety, though I know my time may or may not come being single now, value the person, the blessing God has placed before you, you may never know when it will end.

Truly I tell you, though you may only hear or read what I write from when you last saw me, I’ve changed. God is working in me and leading me amidst the storm and war. There is a war being fought for eternity, this world will pass away in time. All I can do is live a life in reflection to Christ and reveal the Gospel. That God rich in mercy though we were dead in our sins by the transgression of Adam, passed down, were allowed to live. How so, by God himself taking the form of a man, taking the penalty of sin, bearing the weight and dying for us. But even more, resurrecting to show he conquers death so that in he who believes in him, repent of their sins, turns to God, obeying his word, leading others in truth, in love, shave reside with him and have life. God came to save us. Not by our works but saved by grace through faith. This is the gospel. In him dwells peace, truth, life. I cannot tell you how to live your lives, I can only be as an example. Be blessed.

Hope in Vanity

This is the realization of life, you can spend your whole life trying to chase after something, someone, but it is all vanity in the end. You can spend years going to school and attaining a degree but I’ve seen people who just switch, degrees mean nothing in another country, they work different jobs to support or more than 2. You can workout everyday and God forbid you get into an accident and become handicapped. You can chase after an idea of love but it does not mean you will find your “list” or “perfect” person, you can’t control people. You can save to buy any materialistic item but it will rust, age, or fade away, even be replaced by a newer version. You can gain all the knowledge and still know nothing or something new may surface.

There is always a cause and effect in life. But just because all withers and fades does not mean there is no meaning. Life is precious, you begin to value who you have and why when you see past the worldly desires or views. You begin to use your time wisely and appreciate the amount you are given. Being in love is wonderful as well, true love. Chasing your dreams to help make the world a better place and not serve your ego or gain a set figure/salary will help future generations. Having what you need and providing for your family is the greatest of riches shen shared with who you love. Training your body as well requires a trained mind and spirit and reveals self control.

Though it is vain there is purpose when it is rooted in truth and love. There is always hope and that my friends is why I can say it can be found in and through God.

I Am The Wind

​I am the passing of the wind. Flowing through the seasons of life. Some experienced my fall and saw as I passed through drifting memories to the ground as I took my leave. Others experienced the cold, harsh winters as my current situation had me blow fiercely, though I allowed the weight, freeze and pile my emotions. Few experienced my spring, as the light of the morning helped move me forward. Bringing delight and joy to many I passed. I then became the summer winds, though at times with extreme heat, a moment to relax and feel at ease. Calm winds, shifting by the currents of life and though the seasons change, I remain my course, an experience and if ever seen, forgotten, for though I appear and carry the dust, I take my leave, becoming a memory…I am the passing wind….
